Nasal allergy?: It is impossible to see for sure what may be the cause but I suspect that allergy likely places a role. If you have access to nasal steroid spray, give this a try. I presume that you don't have access to an allergist and your family doctor has not been able to offer any help. ...Read more

Sir, I have blocked nose in every night. So I use Otrivin daily to make my nose open. Is this medicine produces any harmful effect?

Yes it's not good: All over the counter sprays except saline are addictive as have a decongestant like afrin (oxymetazoline). They only make your problem worse and continuous. Need to see an ENT specialist to examine you and make appropriate recommendations. ...Read more

How come I wake up with a blocked nose every morning?

How come I wake up with a blocked nose every morning?

Possible reasons for: A.M. Nasal congestion include: if you sleep lying flat in bed, this gives mucus a chance to pool in your nasal passages. While you are sleeping the mucus thickens & you wake with congestion. If the air is dry in your home this can contribute to thickening of the mucus. Are you allergic to dust mites? They infest your pillows, mattress and bed linens leading to allergic reactions in some people. ...Read more

Every time there is a fan on. I get blocked nose. Only in spring season. If I use spray it start burning and might get sneezing a lot. Plz any solution?

Cool mist humidifier: A common cause of congestion during spring and summer months (since it is now nearly spring to our Southern Hemisphere friends) is dry air. Fans dry out your nasal mucosa, leading to congestion. Try a saline nasal spray every few hours, to keep the mucosa moist. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I wake up in the middle of the night with both a runny and blocked nose. No meds to take. What home remedies can I use?

Check environment: I'm guessing something is present in your bedroom you are sensitive to. Start by doing a 'mega-cleaning' to your bedroom. Get rid of things that trap dust, cover your mattress and pillows with a completely enclosed vinyl casing before the linens go on, and make sure you wash bedding at least twice weekly. Try saline rinse and neti pot (both available over the counter) when symptoms do occur. ...Read more

Sir. I am pregnant with 23 weeks. My nose has grown in size making me look bad. Plus at night my breathing is not regular for blocked nose and my snoring has increased. Please help.

Blood flow: The blood flow to all mucous membranes increases in pregnancy and can increase snoring and make you feel like you are congested. This will improve after you have the baby. In the mean time the strips that you can put over your nose to help open the airway can help decrease your snoring as can the devices you put in your nose to keep it open at night. Hope this helps. ...Read more
